My child has a double row of teeth. What should I do?

In the bottom jaw, a temporary “double row” of teeth is normal. Nearly all of the time, the baby incisor teeth will fall out and your child’s tongue will push the grown up tooth forward, into whatever space is available.

If there is enough space to fit the grown up tooth, the tongue will push it into a straight position. Otherwise, the tongue will push the tooth and it will try to fit it in as best as possible.

If your child had no space or very little space between the baby teeth, then in all likelihood, there won’t be enough space to fit in the new and larger grown up teeth.
